Causes For Celebration

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tis said a wedding’s on the cards
That’ll spark the nations soul
As Chelsea win a game at last
And score two blindin’ goals!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Kate Middleton’s marrying what’s ‘is name
Who’s mater is a Queen
Congrats to them. We’ve won a game
And still atop the league.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 There’s a fervent glow on London streets
A Bank Holiday’s declared
A Chelsea win, after three defeats
Will Ancelotti’s hide be spared?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Hang out the Christmas bunting
Put on that Supertramp elpee*
As know all pundits turn to running
Down another struggling team.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 GNP is set to rise
Christmas bonuses will be paid
We’re looking good we’ve stopped the slide
Having lost our last three games.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Hang on a mo? I’ve had a text
Sent personally to me:
“Hiya dad I bet you’ll never guess
What? We’ve won a game, yippee”!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 There’ll be Chelsea fans in clover
Who cried out for Carlo’s head
Who’ll change their stance now slump is over
To cries of “Carlo’s still the best”.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 As a depressing fortnight passes by
The Royal couple set a date
And a regal Chelsea win last night
Is a further cause to celebrate.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 At Thirty sovereigns for a seat
Fans were royally robbed once more
‘Midst a regal victory there’s still defeat
For common sense at a Royal Blue stadium door!


*Crisis What Crisis? Is a Supertramp album. At long last we’ve won a game, but it was close, too close for comfort or so I’m told. As I only go to league games.
